Night Owl Reviews awarded MacBrun, Bearly a Nip, a Top Pick!




This is a great first book in a series and you can easily see many directions that it can go. This story is well paced and gives lots of background on the MacBrun clan. They aren’t exactly your typical Scots. They change into bears. The why and how come out in this story which is an interesting story in and of itself. The main characters come across as well rounded. It’s especially nice that they aren’t young adults but more mature and Mac actually has some chest hair. Andi is hard-headed and opinionated. She may not know about the world she has just be introduced to but she’s willing to take it on. This story did not take long to read but left me wanting more. I really enjoyed this story and think anyone who like paranormal should give it a try.
Andi is heading to the mountains to scatter her mother's ashes. She isn’t an outdoor girl and hopes to have this task quickly done. What she definitely wasn’t expecting was a boulder knocking her car off the road and being rescued by a bear! The ranger, Mac, keeps telling her it couldn’t have been a bear that rescued her and bit her. But, Andi knows it was. Mac does too but he didn’t mean to bit her. He’s got a big problem and he’s not sure how to deal with it.

MacBrun, Bearly a Nip. BBW Bear Romance.

Never get between a bear and his honey!
Mac is a lonely park ranger resigned to the fact there are no available female bear shifters in Bear Clan MacBrun to claim as a mate. But his long-frustrated inner bear refuses to take no for an answer and makes a solo decision to claim its heart’s desire.
A stormy night on a treacherous mountain road sends self-professed “boss-lady” Andi Brunell hurtling over the side of a gorge and into an icy river. Mac rushes to the rescue, but fate places too much temptation in front of him in the form of flirty-eyed, curvalicious Andi. The bear inside knows what’s good for both of them, and during the voluptuous vixen’s rescue, delivers an initiation-stage claim bite.
Oops, it was bearly a nip, but it was enough to set off a chain of life-changing events that flings them both onto an emotional roller coaster. Mac is forced to take Andi back to the ranger station, where she displays all the telltale signs of transforming into a she-bear. Poor Andi has no idea why she’s behaving so strangely, and Mac’s guilty conscience won’t allow him to take advantage of her or come clean about what his bear has done. Trying to be a good guy, Mac battles temptation until his bear pheromones clear from her blood stream. But a long, awkward night of simmering lust, punctuated by string of hilarious situations, leaves both of them questioning their sanity. Once things heat up, the bears come out to play.

Author’s note: this is a happy-for-now ending that will just keep getting happier.

Welcome to the Black Hills Wolves Blog Hunt!

a Rafflecopter giveaway



Hello and welcome to the Black Hills Blog Hop!

This stop is brief no-fuss and I hope will provide a fun glimpse into a book that is very dear to my heart.

Here are a few of the things that were constantly present on my desktop as I worked on Uncaged, book 25 Black Hills Wolves.

This is my inspiration photo for Mitchell Waya, aka Wail’n Waya.



This is my inspiration for Christy Kilgaren. Mila Kunis’ voice and soulful eyes remind me of my late sister Christy.



This was the battle anthem while working on Uncaged. I played this song every morning while sipping my coffee: Steppenwolf's, Magic Carpet Ride.



Mitchell saved her life when she was a child, now Christy’s a grown woman and prepared to save his...




Uncaged book 25 Black Hills Wolves , Decadent Publishing.
Mitchell Waya was born to rage in a cage. Every time he competes in a mixed martial arts match, he brings two secret weapons to the ring—a raging heart and the blood of a wolf. When the beast within explodes, no man stands a chance. Scaling the heights of an international career, he’s not prepared for the tragedy and scandal that overtakes him.

At fourteen, Christy was abducted and abused by a brutal cult of survivalist. In a brave act of defiance, she attempts to escape but finds herself facing execution in a dark alley. When Mitchell appears from the shadows like an avenging angel to rescue her, she catches a glimpse of the protective wolf’s fury. They form a brief but intense bond but then Fate pushes them apart.

Four years pass. Fortunes change. Concerned about Mitchell’s welfare, Christy reaches out, but her kind deed puts her squarely in a killer’s sights, and only the courage of a wolf can save her.

Portrait of A Lone Wolf (book 7) Black Hills Wolves


Blurb:

A mixed-blood Native American wolf-shifter, abandoned by a teenage mother and ignored by an absentee father, Rio Waya has never fit in or felt worthy of love. But when he comes home to the Black Hills, he realizes he wants a mate of his own. 

Recovering from a cheating ex who started a new family behind her back, Sela L√≥pez seeks escape to pull her life back together. As a documentary filmmaker and wildlife photographer, she rents a cabin in the Black Hills with plans to film the beleaguered wolf population. But she’s so busy looking through a camera lens she doesn’t see trouble coming. 

Sparks fly as mutual fears and vulnerabilities surface when Sela and Rio meet. She can’t figure out why the mysterious Mr. Waya is so anxious about having a documentary made of the Black Hills Wolves. But when his secret is exposed, all hell breaks loose. Can Rio win Sela’s trust and soothe her fears about allowing a hunky wolf-shifter into her heart?
